Re(1): Listener No. 4386, Hailstorm: A Setter's Blog by Elap

I'm surprised no-one has mentioned this puzzle yet, so, as someone who has a dyed-in-the-wool aversion to number puzzles, let me be the first to say how much I enjoyed it.

There were four distinct stages:

1. a nice easily identifiable starting place which led on to completion of the grid without the need of main-frame computers or Google to explain mind-boggling mathematical complexities.

2. a fun play with hailstone numbers using the online software.

3. an enjoyable bit of mono-di decipherment.

4. a final run-around reconstructing the grid.

If only all numericals were as much fun as this!
